Tuesday, indeed.

>> Tuesday, March 31, 2009

Yepyep. It's a Tuesday! I have band today (and sign language class, but whatever). I'm looking forward to seeing all my friends again and talking to Christy about rather hilarious things! Hehehe.

I hope everyone else is having a good day. I have officially decided that only two (maybe three) people read my blog. Sadness. So, I'm going to start telling other people about it. It would be nice if we could get the number up to at least 5!!

Ooh, today's my day to post on the D.A.! Woohoo. I know what I'm going to post. Mwahaha. But I'm not doing it until I get back from band. You will have to wait- so there. ^_^

You know what's weird? Last night I had a dream... well, yes, that's pretty normal. But my dream had the song "Thunder" (number one on my playlist!) in it. I mean, I knew I love that song, but I didn't know I loved it THAT much! Oh well, I've also had a dream with the song "Down With The Sickness" in it. It was weird...

Okay enough about boring dreams. I'm going to post some pictures. Fun stuff. I really like pictures and icons and sparkly things... but I'm strange like that. Okay, enough senseless rambling. I know it's very boring.

Bye! Have a good school day.

Hello. Happy Sunday. Tomorrow school starts again- a good thing or a bad thing? I'm actually really excited for band on Tuesday. Can't wait!! But I'm not too happy about actual school starting again. Oh well...

anyway, I've been wondering. About lots of stuff. But what I'm talking about now, is that I've been wondering how many people actually read this blog.

So here's my shout-out:

I just noticed, I put music on my blog (way down at the bottom) but it doesn't seem to start playing- at least on my computer- until you scroll down to it. Anyone else having that problem? And, anyone know how to fix it? I'm going to try a couple things. Oh, and, everyone like the new layout?


Ummmm..... bike rides!

Today I went on a bike ride on this trail in Cottage Grove with Nathan. It was really fun. Except Nathan rides a bit slower than I like... but it was still cool. We went 3 miles.

It's Saturday. The weekend. Yay! I'm not doing much today that I know of, so I'll probably trap myself upstairs in my room and read like I did almost all day yesterday.

On Thursday I went to Creswell Library and returned home with a stack of books. Later that day, I finished A Walk To Remember (loved it!). Yesterday I finished Diary of a Teenage Girl and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (both good!). Today I'll start on Time Enough For Drums (or something like that, I don't think that's exactly right).


Well... hmmm... um... I dunno what to say.

Oh! I have band again on Thursday. For some reason I'm really excited. (well, actually, I know the reasons. Whatever). Yep. I'm excited.

Well, to end things up, I'm going to post a picture from a couple years ago of me and my friend Sierra at her 50's birthday party (that's why we're wearing poodle skirts).


Posting of the posty-ness

>> Monday, March 23, 2009

Yeah I feel kind of weird. Can you tell from the title?

Right now I'm not doing anything important. I just wanted to post a link to a cool online magazine for teens. I've submitted a couple of things I've written, but they're not on the website yet (I'm not sure if they ever will be).

But there's lots of cool things, I think you should check it out.


That's all!


Well, hello

So, I don't have too much to say. Just a couple quick things.

My family got home safely from Washington, and course, now we'll all very tired. Luckily it's Spring Break- no school! No band tomorrow! No piano lessons!

On Tuesday I'm getting together with an old friend, Sierra, who I haven't seen since my birthday party in August! I'm really excited about that.

On Thursday... well, don't really know yet. Maybe going to Micah's house. Maybe doing something else! Our plans aren't quite finished.

But I'm glad to be home, and to have some free time.

Even though I'm trying to work around the house for at least 30 minutes every day- I'm saving up for an iPod Touch! My goal is to have one by June 11th (the last day of band). Hopefully I really will have it by then. =P
Who knows.

Well have a great life and enjoy your spring break! Go out and hug a tree!



Spring Break! WOOHOO!!

>> Thursday, March 19, 2009

Spring break is officially here for me! My Logos classes are done for the week, yay!! Of course, band was fun on Tuesday and today. So whatever. Band can be fun sometimes.

Tomorrow, probably 8:15 in the morning or so, I'm going up to Washington with my parents and little brother. We're gonna see my grandma Peet and some other relatives. We're coming home on Sunday. Should be fun....

Well, I'm tired, and don't feel like posting. So this is a very short post.

Bye have a great Spring Break!




>> Wednesday, March 18, 2009

Oops, I guess I haven't exactly been posting every day. Oh well. That could kind of get boring, because lots of times I have absolutely nothing to say. Like right now!

Life is going pretty well for the most part, I haven't been depressed or anything lately. And I'm very happy about that! I had fun at band yesterday except for the part where I felt sorry for Justin because he had to sit next to me. Hopefully his shoes stayed clean!! Haha. =P
That's the problem with sitting by a flute player. But of course, brass players have those problems also... like it reminds me of the movie "Mr. Holland's Opus", where the trumpet player or something keeps emptying their spit valve on person next to him's foot. So I guess he could have had those problems in the back row too. That makes me feel a little better. XD

Yep. So, that's what's been going on. Normal stuff. Not much exciting, except I went to the middle school concert on Monday, and that was really fun! Today I have school and Awanas, and tomorrow is piano lessons and band.

Well, I better start composing the pass-on story email, do some school, or practice the flute!

So gotta go, bye! See you all later!


Moody teenage girls, birthday parties, hiking, and random videos of hyper boys!

MOOD: TIRED!!!! And weird.
Listening to: Circus by Britney Spears (it's stuck in my head)

Nice title, huh? Well it's basically a summary of what I'm gonna type about. So if you don't like the title- then run away!!

Okay. I'm weird, I know. Well, on with the main post!

So, right now, I'm really tired because I didn't get home from babysitting until about 11:10 last night, and then I got up at 8:30 this morning. And didn't sleep very well. Also, for some reason, I feel really moody. Like teenage girls always are in books and movies. And it's really weird, because I'm not normally like that. I think it's because I'm so tired I can't really think very straight (ask Alice, she's trying to chat with me right now!). And talking about moody girls reminds me of this awesome song, 'Mood Rings'. So I'm posting the lyrics. (They're really long but cool, I think you should read the whole thing! Or just listen to the song, it's by Relient K)

We all know the girls that i am talking about
Well they are time bombs and they are ticking
And the only question's when they'll blow up
And they'll blow up
We know that without a doubt
Cause they're those girls,
Yeah, you know those girls that let their emotions get the best of them
And i've contrived some sort of a plan to help my fellow man

Let's get emotional girls to all wear mood rings
So we'll be tipped off to when they're ticked off
Cause we'll know just what they're thinking, just what they're thinking

She's so pretty but she doesnt always act that way
Her mood's swinging on the swing set almost everyday
She said to me that she's so happy its depressing(stressed out that its soothing)
And all I said was someone get that girl a mood ring

If its drama you want then look no further
Theyre like the real world meets boy meets world meets days of our lives
And it just kills me how they get away with murder
They'll anger you then bat their eyes
Those pretty eyes that watch you sympathize

And i've contrived some sort of a plan to help my fellow man
Let's get emotional girls to all wear mood rings
So we'll be tipped off to when they're ticked off
Cause we'll know just what they're thinking, just what they're thinking


Cause when its black it means watch your back because you're probably
The last person in the world right now she wants to see
And when its blue it means that you should call her up immediately
And ask her out because she'll most likely agree
And when its green it simply means that she is really stressed
And when its clear it means shes completely emotionless(and thats alright i must confess)

We all know the girls that i am talking about
She liked you Wednesday but now its Friday and she has to wash her hair
And it just figures that we'll never figure them out
First she's jekyll and then she's hyde
At least she makes a lovely pair

Mood ring oh mood ring
Oh tell me will you bring
The key to unlock this mystery
Of girls and their emotions
Play it back in slow motion
So I may understand the complex infrastructure known as the female mind

Neat, huh? I like that song.

So now to explain some other parts of that long title.

Today was my friend Hannah's 16th birthday party. It was a lot of fun!!

So, guess I might as well post everyone who was there. The guests were:

Me (of course)
Daniel Pearson
Daniel Rethwill
Megan Smith
Grace Colby
Danielle Green
Christy Gottschalk
Reid Gottschalk

and then the Hamovitz's

Hannah Hamovitz (birthday girl)
Esther Hamovitz
Josiah Hamovitz (he hung out with us for most of the time, so I'm including him).

And our lovely chaperone was
Abigail Pearson.

We hiked up Spencer's Butte. It was fun. We opened presents up there. I gave Hannah chocolate! That's what she asked for!

Well, only one more thing to explain. And this will be the most fun.

So, we stopped at Taco Bell on our way back to the Hamovitz's from Spencer's Butte, and Reid had 2 cups of Pepsi. Hence, he was being REALLY hyper in the car.

Some people were playing music, and he was- I'm laughing thinking about it- dancing along really funnily! So of course, we took a video of him. You guys probably won't think it's as funny, you really need to be there to get the whole affect!!! But anyway, it was great.

And I'm going to bed now! Bye!!!



Okey Dokey

Okay, I'm going to try and post every day. Providing I can think of something to say every day. =P

For now I'm just saying, yay! I'm not sick! I feel perfectly fine now, and that's a good thing, because I actually have stuff to do this weekend!

Tonight (at 6:30), I have a babysitting job. Some people I know have having a game night- for parents only. So a friend of mine and I are gonna watch all their kids upstairs while the grown-ups do stuff downstairs. I know all the kids that will be there, and I need money, so I'm excited!!

Tomorrow is my friend Hannah Hamovitz's birthday party. She turned 16 on the 7th. We're going to hike up Spencer's Butte and open presents up there and stuff. I'm really excited for that, too!!

And, that's about it for today. Note: I still annoy myself. I try to stop annoying myself, but my brain just won't stop!! Stupid brain!!

Bye! -Megan

I'm in a really annoyed, ticked off mood right now. And I feel kinda sick. It's annoying.

I haven't been feeling too great all day, but during band I was fine. And about band, we got new music today! YESS!! And it's GOOD music!! We got this song, 'Italian Polka' that is a Symphonic song! It's not too hard, except part of it has 6 flats!! 6!! (if you don't know about music, sorry!) We also got 'The Entertainer' (by Scott Joplin) and we're doing 'Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy' (weird name!). I like the songs we got.

About being annoyed... well it's partly because I fell yucky. I kinda feel like my rib cage is being squeezed in. It's weird. I hope I'm not sick!! The other part is, I annoy myself. My brain annoys me. What I think about (and who I think about, and what I think about them) annoys me. And I can't really go into more detail than that, sorry.

See y'all sometime.

The weather around here has been pretty weird lately. First it was all sunny, and happy. That was a few days ago. Now it's snowing! It's been snowing off and on all day today (Monday) and it was snowing a little yesterday, too.

Luckily, it's not really sticking. I don't want it to snow, though! I mean, it's almost spring. Come on! I want summer!!

In other news, I haven't been doing too terribly great lately. On Friday, when I was sitting just eating breakfast and minding my own business, I got this sharp, bad pain in my neck. It hurt SO bad! And it didn't stop hurting. After a while, I had to go and lie down in my mom's bed, where I stayed almost the whole day.

I couldn't move, or my neck would get this jolt of pain. It hurt more than anything else I've ever felt, I'm serious. Also, it was driving me nuts, because I just had to lie there- not moving- for hours and hours! I tried to sit up once, and it hurt really bad, I laid back down right away.

At around 3:00, though, I was feeling a little better (the pain medicine had probably kicked in by then). My mom had talked to a nurse, who was worried about me, so I mustered up all the strength I had, and my mom drove me to the doctor's office (about 30 minutes away).

Turns out I had (have) a muscle spasm in my neck. The doctor prescribed some medicine, and stuff like that. But that's not all! I almost passed out in the doctor's office! See, he was pushing around on my neck and stuff, to see where it hurt. But after he stopped doing that, all of a sudden I felt like I was going to throw up, and then I started getting dizzy and seeing bright spots everywhere. So they (the doctor and my mom) made me sit down quickly and put my head between my knees.

It was freaky but exciting!

So anyway, my neck is almost all the way better today, which is good, because I have a concert tomorrow!

Well, that's all for now, ttfn!



Another Pet!

Another story, lucky you.

Here's a story I'm writing for school about New York (yes it stops in the middle of a sentience).

The vibrant colors of a sunrise woke Rachel. “Ohh,” she moaned, and rolled over to look at the alarm clock. 6:13 in the morning. Rubbing her eyes and sighing, Rachel got out of bed and slipped into a pair of padded slippers. The autumn air chilled her room, so she cranked the heat up, and dressed quickly. It would be a busy day for her. Chores, then school, her little brother's football game, and a couple other things. After putting on work clothes, faded, ripped jeans and an old paint-y sweatshirt, she ventured over to the window for a few minutes of peace before the rest of the family woke up.
Rachel lived on a dairy farm with her family; her mother, father, little brother, and older brother. The farm was in New York, near the town of Pleasant Valley. Her mother and father helped run the farm, her big brother worked there, and recently, on her 14th birthday, Rachel herself had been allowed to work there 6 days a week, for pay. She also helped around the house, and worked on the family's small farming land, gardening, taking care of animals, and, to help her mom out, she cooked dinner regularly.
Rachel's window overlooked the side yard, which was empty at the moment. She could see rain falling lightly, the orchard trees swaying in the wind, and more importantly, she could hear cows mooing. “All right, all right, I'm coming!” She told them, and jumped up from the chair she had relaxed in.
Rachel had lived in Pleasant Valley all her life. It was a small town, the population only coming to near 9,000 people. She liked living in the rural area, though, where people didn't care if you wore your pajamas out to get the mail, or walked your dog through their yard. Well, some people didn't mind about the dog. The dairy was outside of the main town area, about 3 miles from any store. The few neighbors they had outside of town also owned farms, but the dairy was the biggest around. Still, it was a small organization. Family-oriented. Rachel walked to the door of her bedroom and opened it, turning the heater down a little bit before she hurried downstairs. Her mom was there making breakfast, her older brother, Kyle, was sitting at the table, and she guessed her dad was already in the dairy's office. “Good morning,” her mother, Lisa, said. Lisa flipped the eggs one more time, and then turned the heat off the burner. Facing her two oldest children, she asked them, “Who's ready for breakfast?” Kyle agreed heartily, and Rachel just yawned. She was hungry, but her brothers always out-ate her, no matter how much her stomach was rumbling. Rachel sat down at the table across from her big brother, nodding him a 'good morning', and poured herself a glass of orange juice. While her mom chattered on about plans for the day, Rachel kept silent, only asking an occasional question, but most of the time just nibbling on eggs and toast, or sipping away at the juice. She let Kyle do the talking.
Kyle was almost 17, a junior at Spackenkill High School (SHS), where Rachel was a freshman. He was a farm boy from birth, had never lived in a major city, and didn't care. He was born in the state of Washington, shortly before his family relocated to New York. His best friends were the cows and the boys on the soccer team, which was the only thing that made him at least slightly prominent in the school. He was a defender on the Spackenkill Spartans, and had been for 2 years. Even though it might have originally made him “popular”, Kyle didn't care a bit for the life of partying and goofing off. He continued to practice in the corn field and spend his free time working on his car or at the dairy, so the popular crowd left him alone. But he didn't care. It's who he was- a farm boy.
He listened to his mom talk, trying not to block it out like he so often did. He nodded replies in the right places (he hoped they were the right places), commented about his plans, and let Rachel ask the questions. Normally he would have some questions of his own, but that morning, he just wanted to get out of the house. When mom finished with her speech and went upstairs to wake up the youngest member of the family, Sam, Kyle turned to his little sister, Rachel. “If you want a ride to school, I'm leaving after 7:15,” he told her. Rachel nodded, and said, “Okay. Sure.” She was glad that Kyle had volunteered his truck. The rain didn't look like it was going to stop, and she didn't want to have to ride the school bus, or arrive at school looking like she had gone swimming in the lake. Her mom and little brother appeared from the stairway, but by then Rachel was finished with breakfast. “I'm going to do chores now, Mom.” she said quickly, and went to grab her raincoat and rubber boots. She opened the front door and quickly stepped outside, slamming the door shut and running to the barn, where the horses were stored. “Good morning Jimmy, morning Sunshine,” Rachel said. She went in, happy to be dry again, excepting the little leaks here and there. She took the brush and ran it through the two horse's coats. Rachel then went over and fed them, taking the usual steps in taking care of the animals. She would have loved to let them in the pasture, but it was wet and muddy, she didn't want to risk one of them breaking a limb. “Bye bye now,” she called, and left the barn. The rain had slowed down a little by then,
